    5                    Cucumbers (medium) -- seeded
    2      teaspoons     Salt
      1/2  cup           Lemon juice
      1/2  cup           Sugar
      1/4  teaspoon      MSG (optional)
    1      tablespoon    White wine vinegar
    2      teaspoons     Sesame seeds -- toasted
 
 Peel cucumbers lengthwise, leaving thin green stripes.
 
 Slice very thinly into a large glass or stainless steel bowl. Add salt and mix
 with hand until cucumber slices are quite limp. Set aside for 45 minutes.
 
 Meanwhile, mix lemon juice, sugar, MSG and white wine vinegar. Transfer
 cucumbers to a strainer and squeeze as much liquid as possible out of the
 cucumbers.
 
 Discard salt water.  Add cucumbers to the lemon juice mixture. Ground the
 toasted sesame seeds and stir into the salad.
